We appreciate technology.
We love the fact that we can work from anywhere in the world with an internet connection. Everything is everywhere in the ever present Cloud. Our office is anywhere we can imagine, ready to open on our laptops and phones.
But sometimes it's just nice to read a good old-fashioned book. There’s something comforting about the feel and smell of a real book in hand. You can get lost in words and paper without the infinite distractions of a screen. A sense of calm and quiet wash over.
Best of all, books never freeze, never need to update, never fail to download. They are always there, waiting to be read, with a bookmark ready to continue the journey.
I know the time may come when all information will be digital, and when people will think of libraries and bookshops with a nostalgic smile to a time gone by.
But in the meantime, we're going to cherish our books. We won't let them go. They will always be there, ready to carry us away.
And we're pretty glad our kiddos are getting lost with us.
Time to read.
